Boston Weather: 73.0°F | A Few Clouds



Gusty and Cooler

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

A tightly curled low pressure sitting over the northern Midwest is driving our weather at the moment. The passage of a warm front Monday raised temperatures by 16 degrees in just a few hours. Consequently the low temperature will not be reached until around eight in the morning. The drizzly rain will clear and we will see some sun Tuesday as a low pressure trough moves away from us. Because of the dominating effect of the low to the north, pressure gradients are tight and thus conditions will be gusty. Skies will cloud back up on Wednesday as the large low drift off eastward and a cold fronts builds over the eastern states bringing with it a thirty percent chance of showers.

Today: Dry and breezy with maybe a few scattered clouds. High 53F (12C). Winds 20-25 mph.

Tonight: Clouds reappearing. Winds from the west at 10-15 mph. Low 40F (4C)

Wednesday: Chillier.Starting off with broken clouds later changing to overcast. Possible showers from late morning onwards. High 47F (8C). Low 37F (3C). Winds 10-15mph.

Thursday: Pretty much as Wednesday with cloud cover broken sporadically and continuing chance of rain. The colder temperatures gives an increased chance that the precipitation will fall as snow. High 43F (6C). Low 30F (-1C).
